Unexpectedly In Love by Jean Oram is book 6 of the Christmas Mountain clean romance series by various authors. Sweet, clean, second chance romance for a single mom.
Joy Evans life has imploded and now a divorced woman with a son to raise and an ex who still thinks her life isn’t nearly as important as his...expects her to move across the ocean so he can pursue his career and she can just make do.
When a man from her past and a rival to boot moves next door...he sets out to show her that underneath she is still the take charge woman she was years ago and it’s time to take back her life and be who she is meant to be!!
Great seasonal read!
What a heartwarming story just in time for Christmas! I love the transition Joy makes from a woman scared to make waves, to a woman realizing her own potential and grasping onto it with both hands. Of course, a good man supporting her can't hurt, either.
Jean Oram does what she always does... gives us characters to build our own relationships with, then takes us on a ride!
